Plenty of good wine selections to choose from. It was not too crowded and the surroundings at the Franklin Conservatory Park are beautiful. We enjoy it very much every year. We also liked the type of the glass they gave out this year.

All the restaurants were replaced by food trucks this year. Food trucks are fine, but I would have liked more choices of food for vegetarians. They were also not prepared to handle as many customers as they had. It took us a very long time to get our foods.

I enjoyed the variety, the live music and the atmosphere of the gardens. It was a little warm that day, but that's why men invented white chilled wine. :)

I think you should be able to purchase bottles then and there to take home the same day. That would have been nice.

The diversity of wines and beers that we could taste. The setting was beautiful with the gardens and sculptures! The live music was excellent.

It would be nice if food was available right within the wine festival area.--- Instead of going out to the entrance to buy from the food trucks. (However, the food we purchased from one of the trucks was good.)

The beer and wine vendors/choices were fantastic. The setting was fantastic. The issues above dulled the experience.

Great idea, incredible venue, poorly executed. No tables for wine drinkers to sit with food. Tables only for beer drinkers. Wine drinkers could not enter area with beer drinkers. So if one in a couple wanted to sample beer and another wanted to sample wine, they could not be together or eat together. It made for the whole evening to be running from one venue to the other.

It was a lot of fun; the wines were great, and it wasn't too crowded.

You could only purchase a case; next time they should let you purchase wine by the bottle or even half of a case.
